justify shooting an unarmed person as self-defense. since your state became the first to adopt stand your ground in 2005, the number of what's termed as justifiable homicides tripled from 12 to 35 per year, between 2005 and 2010. that's an increase of 283%. are you hearing us yet, governor?! what are those people outside your office, what they're trying to get you to hear is that it's going to take a lot more than last year's quickly assembled task force to show them that you take their concerns around this law seriously. they want real action, that shows you understand this law is unacceptable and should not be used to justify the death of an unarmed teenager. the problem does not begin with the tragedy that happened to trayvon martin. the problem does not even begin with the actions of george zimmerman. governor, the problem begins and remains with the stand your ground law. sincerely, melissa.

budget that provides tax breaks for the wealthy and large corporations and unneeded increase in defense spending while slashing funding for medicaid, food stamps and women and children's funding has left appropriators with such small funding allocations that this bill was unworkable and unrealistic from the start. so here we are, slashing programs that serve and protect the most vulnerable among us, programs that are proven to save us money in the long run, and programs that support flexibility and accountability in our communities. we may disagree, mr. speaker, on how to keep our economy strong, but we should all agree that we must stop piling these cuts on the backs of seniors, the working poor, women, kids and the middle class. stop these cuts to our communities, we should reject this bill, unless it's grossly increased in the aggregate which it won't be as we know. so we should reject this bill. thank you, mr. chairman, i yield back the balance of my time. the chair: the gentleman yields back the balance of his time. for what purpose does the gentleman from new york rise? >> i move
